The 6th World Glaucoma Congress (WGC) was successfully held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center from June 6-­‐9, 2015. WGC is one of the premier glaucoma meetings and is organized by the World Glaucoma Association (WGA). It is held every 2 years and the venue rotates throughout the different continents. The Philippine Glaucoma Society (PGS) actively participated in this year’s WGC with 31 PGS members attending, exchanging ideas with glaucoma colleagues, contributing to the scientific program and supporting the initiatives of the WGA. There were also other delegates from the Philippines who attended, which highlighted the strong Filipino presence in this meeting.
